Sutter Home Winery Moscato California 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sutter Home Moscato was cap and drained to increase varietal intensity and was 100% non-malolactic fermented to maintain crisp acidity. To preserve its fresh, fragrant aromas and flavors, this wine is cold-fermented and aged entirely in refrigerated stainless steel tanks.

Sutter Home Winery:
The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley.

The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price." After resurrecting Sutter Home in 1948, the Trincheros struggled to keep the family winery afloat, imbuing it with the values of hard work, ingenuity, humility and integrity that have characterized them ever since. Each member of the family played a vital role in keeping the business running: Mother Mary Trinchero kept the books, younger children Vera and Roger helped on the bottling line, while older brother Bob assisted his dad, Mario, and uncle John in cleaning out tanks and barrels. The family's cohesion kept Sutter Home together and eventually made it the success it is today. With its creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and the introduction of high-quality, affordably priced varietal wines during the 1980s and '90s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest, independent family-run winery in the U.S. Read less

OMG best Muscato for the $ and available all over CA. Exotic Island taste of lycee nuts, light bouquet of peaches. Each sip as fresh as the first; sweet & clean. We can kill a bottle in no time. They also make a pink Moscato, not as sweet.

I thought this wine was very good it has a clean refreshing taste, smooth no after taste and not too sweet. Good chose for a dessert wine.

Not a fan of moscato, so I suppose I'm biased. Way too sweet for my taste.

I think this Muscato was fairly decent...Not the best by any means, but a light, drinkable, pleasantly sweet taste with notes of pear. Finished a bottle along with a couple of slices of coconut pound cake and for only $7.00/ bottle a decent value for the money.

This wine is waaay too sweet and I was unable to finish one glass. It reminds me of an over sweetened version of the pineapple-orange juice drink (from a can) that I drank in my youth. This may be an ideal wine for the "wine cooler" crowd.

A peppery nose leads the way in this sweet, pleasant, simple quaffer.

Extravagantly perfumed, with beautiful scents of white peaches, rose, and lichee. Well-balanced with good acidity and a lingering finish of sweet and creamy peach and honeydew melon flavors. Light-bodied to enjoy as an aperitif or pair with fruit, light cheeses, sorbets (strawberry, peach, pear, or apple), and other light desserts. - Winery

Sutter Home Winery has been producing this classic, fragrant, light-bodied dessert wine from the Muscat grape for over 50 years. Moscato is the Italian name for Muscat. It is vinified from grapes grown near Madera and Fresno,

Delightfully fruity, with the freshest scents of peaches, flowers and smoky honey. It's pretty sweet, but the peach flavors are balanced by crisp acidity and an ultraclean feel. Finishes sweet and spicy.

Tasting Notes:

This is an extravagantly perfumed wine, with beautiful scents of creamy white peaches, rose petals, and lichee fruit. The luscious peach and honeydew melon flavors are sweet, creamy and well-balanced with good acidity and a long, lingering finish. Enjoy it as an aperitif or dessert wine paired with fresh fruit, light cheeses, fruit tarts or sorbets (especially strawberry, peach, pear or apple) and other light desserts. But don’t limit your food choices to desserts; spicy dishes like Thai or Cajun entrees are well-suited with Moscato as well.

The Sutter Home Moscato was cap and drained to increase varietal intensity and was 100% non-malolactic fermented to maintain crisp acidity. To preserve its fresh, fragrant aromas and flavors, this wine is cold-fermented and aged entirely in refrigerated stainless steel tanks.
